Monday Motivation– Effort

Just over a year ago, I got an MRI report that suggested I have MS. After further testing, we found that to be true. In a lot of ways, getting this diagnosis is the best thing that could happen for me. I might not *want* MS, but I am happy to know what's going on. … Continue reading Monday Motivation– Effort

Monday Motivation– Patience

I really like this quote. It's not the usual admonishment about patience. It's not that you're doing something wrong. It's just reminding you that it might not be time to bloom yet. You're under no obligation to "bloom" and be perfect or beautiful every day or all the time. I can pretty easily apply this … Continue reading Monday Motivation– Patience

I chose this quote for today's Monday Motivation because last … Continue reading Monday Motivation– Caterpillar Moments

Monday Motivation– Comparison

I might have shared this graphic before. However, if I have I know it means even more to me now. It's been 6 months since the MS diagnosis. Even before getting the definite diagnosis, my health threw me into a world of taking things one day at a time. It made me grateful for each … Continue reading Monday Motivation– Comparison

Monday Motivation– Created to be victorious

I don't know that I have much to add to my quote this week. I think it kind of says it all. No matter what life has made you believe is true about yourself, you were not made to feel guilty, ashamed, condemned, or unworthy. You were not made to live depressed. Think of a … Continue reading Monday Motivation– Created to be victorious

Monday Motivation- It Takes a Village

I moved across state (again) in the middle of April. We had a great routine babysitter which allowed me to rest as much as I needed as well as get some work done. We also hired cleaners so we weren't arguing about the cleanliness of the house. We also made use of date night sitters. … Continue reading Monday Motivation- It Takes a Village
